A Nun on the Bus: How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change, and Community by Sister Simone Campbell (Excerpt)

A Nun on the Bus: How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change, and Community by Sister Simone Campbell (Excerpt)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 433|Likes:
In the summer of 2012 Sister Simone Campbell and a group of fellow Roman Catholic nuns toured parts of the country to rally support against Paul Ryan’s budget; a budget plan that cut vital social programs for the hurting poor and the struggling middle class. Prayer groups turned into rallies and small town meetings became national media events. Sister Simone became a galvanizing force for progressives of all stripes and a compelling religious voice in the midst of a turbulent presidential election season. Appearing on national media programs on every network, and on the heels of a widely celebrated speech at the Democratic National Convention, Sister Simone has continued to gather support and lobby for change in Washington, D.C.

Rooted in a deep spirituality of compassion and service, Sister Simone gives voice to the hunger, isolation, and fear that so many people in America are feeling right now and shows us how we can create real change in our communities and in our own hearts through the contemplative life of prayer.

Powerful, inspiring stories from the Nuns on the Bus tour, and from Sister Simone’s own life, offers readers a fresh vision for a lived spirituality that is at the heart of today’s progressive Christian movements.
